Saarinen Tulip Side Chair

Saarinen Tulip Side Chair

Designed in 1956, the Tulip Chair was born out of Saarinen's dissatisfaction with what he called the "slum of legs" under most dining tables. Our Saarinen Tulip Side Chair is inspired by the work of Saarinen and offers an affordable and high quality reproduction of his popular Tulip Chair.

Eero Saarinen is one of the 20th century's most well known and respected designers. He is known for his ability to adapt his style to each specific project, and for designing in terms of setting rather than form. His Tulip Chair is the perfect example of this, as its shape was created to fix what he saw to be a problem in many dining rooms. This chair earned much recognition, receiving the 1969 Museum of Modern Art Award, and remains just as popular today.

The Saarinen Tulip Side Chairs bring this acclaimed design into your home. It works great to add a hint of retro flair to your dining table, or as occasional seating in your living room or home office. The Saarinen Tulip Side Chair is also customizable, enabling you to own a classic that fits in perfectly with your current décor. Its upholstered cushion is available in your choice of leather or fabric, with a great selection of colors to choose from. Its frame is made of fiberglass and met by a painted cast aluminum base.

Fantastic chair at great price
Love the chairs. Loved the price. Only issue was that it took well over 12 weeks to get them delivered to us which was a disappointment. If you don't have any relatively urgent need to get these chairs, then definitely worthwhile purchasing

Great product
These are quality reproductions. I had been looking for a while and decided to take the plunge. One of the customer service representatives mailed me swatches which was super helpful. I wanted brown but wasn't sure which one would look best. I finally decided and I could not be happier with my purchase!
Great price and love the upholstery on the cushion.

Saarinen Tulip Side Chair
The chairs are absolutely beautiful. The craftsmanship is excellent. The chairs look amazing in my kitchen surrounding my Saarinen table. I choose the jewelry blue seat covers. The color is true to the color sample on line. The customer service is amazing. I'd definitely recommend inmod for those who are looking for modern furniture with exceptional quality.
I believe you get excellent products for less than what you would pay from other companies.

Chairs are perfect. Look great in my kitchen!
Very satisfied. Chairs were perfect, flawless. I love them. Have been wanting these chairs for 60 years, but the original Knoll chairs were always beyond my pocketbook. I would defy anyone walking into my kitchen to see any difference. Love them.
